BLISSFIELD, Mich. - A joint funeral is planned for a woman and her pregnant sister who authorities said were fatally shot in Michigan by an Iraq war veteran.

Police said 38-year-old Thomas Fritz on Friday shot 33-year-old ex-girlfriend Amy Merrill, her 24-year-old sister Lisa Gritzmaker and their mother.

The sisters died and the mother is recovering at a hospital.

Gritzmaker was about eight months' pregnant, and obituary information said the child's name would have been Abbigail Michelle.

Visitation is 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. Friday at Anderson Funeral Home in Adrian and Saturday at Blissfield Baptist Church at 10 a.m.

Authorities said Fritz killed himself Tuesday in West Virginia.

The sisters grew up in the Blissfield area.

Before moving in with Merrill, Fritz was living in Sylvania, Ohio.
